Microinsurance drawing competition
19 January 2010
The secretariat of the Microinsurance Network teamed up with a group of students from the Lycée Technique Michel-Lucius in Luxembourg to promote microinsurance. The awareness-raising project, part of the Luxembourgish school curriculum, is designed to prepare the students from year 12 (16-17 year olds) for their working life and improve their ability to work in a group.
The students decided that the best way to raise the awareness of microinsurance was to organise a drawing competition throughout schools in Luxembourg. The participants were asked to draw an image that explains microinsurance.
The competition, sponsored by Utopolis, had 12 entries and the top 5 including the winner can be viewed below.
The secretariat would like to thank Julie, Frederico, Lisa, Melissa and Philippe for their great effort and enthusiasm in making this project a success. Not only did they inform schools and teachers the importance of microinsurance, they also got their award ceremony reported in the local press!
Congratulations to Kelly Marquez Oliveiro for her winning drawing below. She received a voucher for €130 to Darty while the 4 runners up, who's pictures can be seen by clicking on the links below, received 2 free cinema tickets each.
